    First off, I don't do scrappy so this is so hard for me. I tried something totally different yesterday and quit after 2 blocks. It was just to "busy" for me..
    So I thought I'd make this, and I don't like it. Is this how it's supposed to look?
    I'm about ready to scrap this one too!

    To busy for me yet again!

    I think it is beautiful. It is not a real busy scrappy. I think you might like it if you give it a chance, IMHO. lol

    Don't STOP!!! It's darling. And, when it's finished, you can send it to me...COD. No, really, it's going to be very pretty when it's completed. Keep going...

    I think they are pretty too!

    How about rearranging the blocks to where they are all the same? Like all the ones with the little green tips in the same block? It will almost look like those spinning table toppers that some of the quilters have been making.

    Or, have one half of the block one piece of fabric? A solid or tone on tone. Then try playing around with the blocks.

    I think its great, finish it. It might not be your taste but you can always give it away. I know a lot of people would be happy to receive a quilt this beautiful.

    Oh no! Don't scrap it. It is looking lovely. Give it time to grow on you. Perhaps take a break and come back after a day or two? It will be a lovely quilt. It is looking really nice already. I really do like it. :D:

    You could also use a sashing between blocks that would make it less busy. This is my kind of quilt! I love it!:)

    I think it's going to be lovely, and if you still don't like it when it's finished, I'll give you my address !
    I really love how looks so far.

    I'm a lover of scrappy and I think it fabulous. You might like it more after you finish it, if not then donate it.

    I like it. When you get it done and put a border on it I think you will like it.

    I thinks it's very pretty. What is it that you don't like? Colors, block, etc?

    I would use narrow sashing if you are not happy. I love it.

    I think you've got some pretty blocks going on there, but since you are not liking them, I think all you have to do is rearrange the blocks and you will probably change your mind and really like them. Maybe you could do a search on the forum or elsewhere and see the different way they are arranged, and get some ideas..........but don't scrap your pretty quilt !

    I like it. Put it away for awhile. Maybe when you come back to it you'll have a different opinion.
